Chevy Truck Capabilities
Buying a new vehicle is a big commitment, that’s why it is important to do your research before making a purchase. One important thing to discover is a vehicle’s performance capabilities, this is particularly important when it comes to pickup trucks. People who buy trucks needs them to perform and get a lot of work done, whether it involves towing, hauling, getting through rough terrain or all of the above. Today we’re going to take a look at the unique Chevy truck capabilities.
One important feature that helps improve the performance capabilities of a truck, is traction. whether the weather is winter or summer you’re going to need a truck that can handle the various conditions you’ll encounter. Luckily, Chevy trucks come with an automatic locking rear axle that helps them move with confidence and control. This locking rear axle is referred to as the G80. The rear axle locks automatically if one wheel starts to spin, enabling both rear wheels to propel the truck. This added traction makes a two-wheel drive pickup just as capable as a 4×4 pickup.
The G80 automatic locking rear axle is available on most Silverado models, some Colorado models, and it standard on the Tahoe and Suburban. The G80 provides more traction than a conventional limited-slip axle. The limit-slip axle actually limits the amount of traction-enhancing torque that can be channeled to the faster-rotating wheel. The G80 actually engages and disengages automatically with no input from the driver. The lockup and disengagement processes happen instantly.
